This Park is situated halfway mount Cypress. The views are just breathtaking. When you drive up to the park you have to be aware of cyclists who are cycling on the mountain. This is a very nice park an absolutely worthy of a visit

We were bought here by family we have in Vancouver. We came here in the evening hoping to catch the sunset from Barrett's View. It was a scenic drive and we managed to get night views of the city.

It place gives you the panoramic view of Vancouver. Breath-taking. It's similar to Lawrence Lab outlook point at the U. of California-Berkeley where you see the entire SF Bay. you must take the car up there.

Just north of the city, drive up to the viewpoint to see all of Vancouver laid out below. On a clear day the views are spectacular. Combine it with a visit to Horseshoe Bay
